I maybe a bit slow here, sorry if it has been posted before but this weather is frying my brain.

I thought it was very good and wondered how many world wide would have read it (sorry again, if there was a counter I missed it)

:wink:

Wow! That's so detailed :shock: Oh, why can't it be real? :( I know it's very real for all of us, but I'd love to visit it in the flesh and not just in my mind!

I bet Kit and MrB are both sitting at home with a great big grin on their faces :)

Yup, it's a really good piece of background to the Stonewylde series. I hope no-one tries altering it. That's the one thing about Wikipedia I don't like - you can spend hours researching, writing, then posting a piece that you think will be of great interest/useful information to the world out there, then along comes someone who thinks they know better, or they don't agree with the text of what has been published, and they go and change it - which, horrors, they can do. So the original contributor has to be on their guard all the time. Like the Internet itself, Wikipedia is shifting sands.

It could be so easy to miss the fourth word on the first line ......... and the rest is so true that any reader who stumbled upon this article would be convinced of the existence of Stonewylde.

I can just imagine hoards of Stonewylded people scouring maps of Dorset or trying to find their way there through an AA routeplanner ...........

:lol: :lol: :lol: I just can't believe that you wonderful people have only just found this entry on Wikipedia ... its been there for some considerable time and something Kit put up sometime ago. If you ever searched for Stonewylde in Google, it has often appeared on the first page of the returned results.

Interestingly, the fourth word was only inserted after Wikipedia threatened to remove the whole entry because it DID appear that Stonewylde was real! :shock:

Stonewylde on Satnav??

Postby cornmother » Fri May 23, 2008 10:04 am

Aw gee, Mr. B....I can't believe you let the Stonewylde cat out of the bag (I just can't believe that you wonderful people have only just found this entry on Wikipedia) This thread could have run and run....who posted it? who wrote about it? was it someone who lived there years ago? an ex-Hallfolk? and so on........

Guess someone would have got to the source eventually, as it's there for all to see. Just hope, as I said, no one mucks about with the text - it's perfect as it is.
